Innovation Description

Palabek Refugee Settlement is home to 30,000 South Sudanese refugees, mostly women and children. While there are maternal health services, the limited income generation opportunities make it difficult to afford transportation to far-flung clinics. Currently, these women are fully reliant on handouts (eg. relief food) and lack the ability to earn an income, which could be used for transportation to a clinic, improving the home environment for children or improving the family diet.
